Here’s how Tartan Army fans reacted to be put into Group F:

@r_i_mac83: “Not the hardest of draws should be able to compete at top end, pity about getting Israel again tho. Hopefully fans are back in stadiums across the country after new year because it’s needed.”

@Fintan_T_Stack: “We should be winning that group. We won't, of course. But we should.”

@KillieEdgar: “We've had worse groups! There's definitely a chance for us to qualify from there. Let's hope we get to travel to some of those away games too.”

@AlbertKirkJr: “Let's face it, even the Faroes will fancy themselves for a top two slot.”

@SweegerOfficial: “Third. A couple of absolutely abysmal results will do us.”

@aboutceltic: “Denmark. The 'easiest' we could have asked for from Pot 1. Austria. A good side, avoided some slightly better sides again in Pot 2. Israel. Sick of the sight of them, one of the better sides in Pot 4. Faroe Islands. A lot better than they used to be, should still be six points. Moldova. Fancy all six again.”

@JamieSwinney86: “As good as we could have hoped. Best chance we have had to qualify for a World Cup in a long time. With the progress we have achieved under Clarke this is a real chance. Predicted Clarke would take us to the Euros when he was appointed. Now predicting he will take us to the WC.”

@CTMcLaughlan: “Denmark drawing Faroes doesnt seem fair. We should be allowed to swap Israel for Mull to balance it up.”
